The Kulin Bush Races have been busy giving away money to community groups and organising this year’s event entertainment.
On Sunday the 24th June 2018 the Kulin Bush Races presented a cheque for a whopping $52,000 spread across 6 community groups/organisations here in Kulin. The successful funding recipients were; Kulin Arts, Camp Kulin, Masonic Lodge, Kulin Motor Museum, Kulin Bowling Club and the Kulin District High School. The day was a fantastic opportunity to highlight the contributions Kulin Bush Races make to the wider community.
In a separate presentation by Tom Murphy the Kulin Bush Races presented a cheque to Kulin District High School. Tom had the following to say about the presentation;
“It was with great pleasure that I was able to present a cheque for $20,000 to the Kulin District High School on behalf of the Kulin Bush Races. For me it reinforces why we put so much hard work into running our amazing event. In addition to the sense of community, fulfilment and pride that I and many others get from volunteering at the races, the knowledge that we are supporting our local school (Kulin District High School) makes it all worthwhile. We really hope that the students enjoy using their new computers and that they in-turn will support the Bush Races in the years to come.” – Tom Murphy, Vice Chairman of the Kulin Bush Races Committee.
We can’t wait to see how these groups use the money to bring their ideas to fruition.
On behalf of the committee a big thank you to our amazing sponsors who continue to support us and help facilitate the continued growth and expansion of this iconic community event.
Your contribution to the community is so much more than just dollars and cents and we hope to have you back next year when we do it all again and bring together people from all across this wonderful state and country of ours.
The next edition of the Kulin Bush Races will be held over the 5th, 6th and 7th of October 2018. Mark it down on the calendar, get your caravan and camping gear in order and get ready for an epic Road Trip.
All the fun will be back, horses (of the animal and tin variety), music, food, fireworks, kids entertainment and much more all at our beautiful location alongside Jilakin Rock & Jilakin Lake. This iconic event truly offers something for everyone so keep your eyes and ears open as we countdown with a host of exciting plans underway.
The 2017 Kulin Community Bank Bush Races were our largest ever recorded in terms of people through the gates. We would like to thank everyone who attended our community event, with all profits going back into the community you really are amazing and we are very thankful.
Special mention to the over 200 volunteers who put in countless hours over the past 10 months to make it all happen. You have set the bar tremendously high but we do love a challenge in Kulin so 2018 look out!!
We look forward to seeing you all again in 12 months!!!
